Marissa Phillips, ComForCare Home CareQ: We’re hoping to go on a one- or two-week vacation this summer for the first time in ages, but we’re very concerned about leaving my mother without proper care. Is respite care from a company such as yours a possibility?

A: Absolutely!

Our staff will come and do an assessment to make sure we can meet your mom’s needs.

The RN will create a care plan specific to her and we will identify the staff we feel will be a good fit with her situation. You are welcome to meet the caregiver at your home or at our office and ask questions.

We have one family that calls us every summer to stay with Mom while the family goes camping in the wilderness for a week.

It’s been wonderful for all of them, including Mom.

Q: What services are provided for longer-term respite care?

A: Every case is different, we can start out slow and go to full 24/7 care if needed.

We provide care for one family that has a private caregiver and we fill in on their vacation/sick time. We have other families that live out of the country.

Care Management is one of our specialties. We take clients to doctor’s appointments, assist at the hospital and help manage the care needs once they are discharged.

Recently a family member texted me, saying, “Thanks for doing this, it’s the first time in 5 years I haven’t had to put my family on the back burner when my brother got sick.”

Dr. Quenton Gebeau, Q Family DentalDo you struggle with crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, or do you lack the confidence you deserve because you are unhappy with your smile?  Imagine straightening your teeth in a few months without needing braces! 

With Invisalign, a series of clear, removable aligners are worn over the course of a few months — for approximately two weeks each — slowly working towards ideal alignment.  

Benefits include:

Improved Function — Biting forces are balanced and teeth wear at a more normal rate

Improved Hygiene — Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean

Improved Esthetics — Straight teeth help make beautiful smiles

Invisalign often takes less time than traditional braces because of fewer visits during treatment. Usually the cost is less than braces.

Once we confirm the patient is doing well with treatment, we see the patient every two months for progress checks. Treatment can last from two months to 24 months, depending on your needs.  In certain situations, traditional orthodontics (braces) may be the best option.

 

Invisalign helps maintain good oral hygiene during treatment, allowing you to brush and floss normally without the headache of wires and brackets being in the way.  

Many people have an orthodontic benefit included in their dental insurance. We also offer payment options.  

Straight teeth and an ideal smile are closer than you think!  Call us today for a free consultation and insurance benefit check.

Linda Elder, Woodland Heights Assisted Living ResidenceReducing your possessions is often one of the most challenging aspects of deciding to move to an assisted community. It can seem overwhelming and provoke anxiety and sometimes sadness. There are a lot of memories in your home.

Think about the things that are most important to you – either because you will need them or just because you enjoy them.

In most assisted living communities, you will not be cooking. Think about that beautiful 12-piece bone china set or the sterling silver you have not used for years. If they are family pieces, perhaps a relative or close friend would treasure them for you.

Keep your favorite photos and artwork. Keep your family albums. Keep your coffee pot and toaster and a few plates, utensils and glasses. Many stores sell small sets of service for 4 which are perfect for your new setting. You won’t need your vacuum or other small appliances. Consider buying yourself a few new towels to spruce up your new apartment. If you have large sofas and dressers, consider a garage sale and use the funds to purchase smaller chairs or recliners that don’t take up as much space.

If you are thinking of moving in the near future, start now to talk with family and reduce unnecessary items. You’ll be helping yourself toward a much easier move.

Dr. Daniel Beebe, Beebe ChiropracticIt isn’t just an old wives’ tale: Summer is the season when most babies are born, with August ranking as the primary month for births in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control’s National Center for Health Statistics.

For a healthy pregnancy, chiropractic care should be strongly considered. For those who are in discomfort or pain, chiropractic care can be extremely helpful.

Chiropractic is very safe during pregnancy. There are no contraindications against it, according to a New Zealand study by J.M. Fallon with the International Chiropractic Association.

In addition to its safety and effectiveness, chiropractic can significantly reduce time spent in labor. The Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapeutics reports:

· With chiropractic care, first-time mothers have a 25 percent decrease in labor time.

· Subsequent pregnancies have a 33 percent decrease in labor time.

· Women who experience back pain during pregnancy find relief from chiropractic care in 85 percent of cases and the treatment can dramatically reduce back labor.

Subluxation (when bones such as vertebrae move and create pressure on nerves) often occurs to mothers during gestation. It’s easy to see postural changes through pregnancy – the center of gravity changes, the weight of the baby places increased pressure on the spine and pelvis, and towards the end of the pregnancy, changes are seen in gait pattern (often called the “waddle”).

Chiropractic treatment during pregnancy may include handwork or dropleaf tables, always with the mother’s comfort in mind.

Jarod Cogswell, FIT AcademyDid you know that there are more people at the gym struggling with the same life challenges ... body image, depression, low self-esteem and other negative energy vampires? And believe it or not, even the fitness fanatics that look physically amazing are trapped by self-destructive emotions.

The truth is that fitness benefits contain much more than simply the physical rewards. Exercise gives us confidence, a sense of self-worth, pride and the list of positives for a happy life are in the thousands.

After 20-plus years of doing what I can to help change lives through fitness, I can honestly tell you that it doesn't matter what you look like. What matters is how you feel.

I’ve experienced quite a few people coming into the gym setting with a cloud of darkness above them and I always say, "Let's put a smile on your face and the body will follow."

Recently I asked random FIT Academy members what life lessons consistent exercise has given them.

Answers included:

“Don’t give up before the ‘miracles’ happen”

“Comparison is the thief of joy”

“Discomfort brings me growth”

“Never cheat yourself of the gift you have been given”

“I CAN!”

The other benefit of fitness? Friends. Support. Love. Hanging around like-minded people with similar challenges is motivating and inspiring. Connect with the right people, get results physically, mentally and spiritually.

Start transforming your life today. Don't wait. You get one shot. Make it count.

SPECIALTY HEATING AND COOLING - Norm MatheisThe Portland area has had hotter-than-usual weather in recent years, making home cooling systems seem less like a luxury and more of a necessity. Here’s a look at the different types of Carrier products we install:

Heat Pumps provide both heating and cooling, so their efficiency is measured with two distinct ratings. In cooling mode, heat pumps receive a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER number. SEER is like gas mileage. The higher the gas mileage of SEER, the more efficient the automobile or system is. Most new heat pumps rate between 13.0 and 19.0 SEER.

Central Air Conditioners — While A/C units may look the same on the outside, some are quieter and more efficient than others, others are earth-friendly and save you money. The Carrier Infinity 21 has a 70 DBA sound rating, about the same as a new refrigerator. Higher SEER and EER numbers save you more money. If your air conditioner is old, more than likely it is operating an 8-10 SEER. According to Carrier, for every $100 spent using a 10.0 SEER air conditioner, a 21.0 SEER (the highest efficiency offered by Carrier) should cost you approximately $48.

Ductless systems, also known as ductless heat pumps, use a small, quiet outdoor unit and one to eight separate indoor units. They are mounted on walls or recessed into ceilings and operate by remote control. They are a great choice for hard-to-cool areas such as bonus rooms, family rooms and converted attics.

CRESCENT GROVE CEMETERY & MAUSOLEUM - Nancy FeltonNo one relishes thoughts of their own death, or the death of someone they love, but responsible adults understand the need to make plans for the future — even the part without us in it.

Here are five reasons to prearrange your final arrangements today.

Relieve their burden. The passing of a loved one is an emotional, heart-wrenching period for all involved. The last thing your family and friends need is to make these decisions for you. This can be prevented by taking care of the details yourself.

Stop the guessing. Don’t ask your family to play detective. If you do not prearrange your services, your loved ones can’t be sure they’ve honored your last requests.

Ensure quality. Every cemetery and funeral home is different. Researching options now will help you find the location and setting that will fulfill your needs.

Make it personal. Many spell out exactly what songs, prayers, poems (even jokes) they want shared at their service.  At the end of the day, it’s your service—and it should be conducted your way.

Save money. Preplanning your cemetery arrangements makes sense, It also price-guarantees the fees at today's costs.

Crescent Grove Cemetery & Mausoleum is Tigard’s only nonprofit, non-denominational cemetery. Call, click or visit us today for more information on prearrangement at one of the oldest cemeteries in Oregon.

PRESTIGE CARE RIVERWOOD - Askol SaieediThe residents at Prestige Senior Living Riverwood already know they’re living in Tualatin’s premier senior living community.

You may need more (or less) medical care than Riverwood currently offers. Here’s an overview of the differences between independent and assisted living:

Independent Living. Independent living communities are perfect for seniors looking for more opportunities to socialize with people their own age — or who are tired of the endless hassle of home maintenance and upkeep.

Independent living centers generally include a variety of studio, one- or two-bedroom apartments or cottages. A full kitchen is typical, and residents can choose between preparing their own meals or eating at a central dining hall. A meal plan is generally not included in the base price, though transportation and recreational activities are. Housekeeping services are usually provided as well.

Assisted Living. Assisted living communities provide all the amenities of independent living — plus a little extra care for those daily tasks of living. The on-call staff at assisted living homes can aid with grooming, dressing, personal hygiene, mobility and medication management.

Apartments generally feature a kitchenette and full bathroom. Planned excursions and other leisure activities are included in the base price, along with a meal plan.

Assisted-living caregivers can’t provide the same medical services as a hospital or hospice, nor are they equipped to handle persons with severe cognitive impairment or memory issues.

MCCLESKEY CELLARS - Mike McCleskey MCCLESKEY CELLARS - Anne McCleskeyAh, spring has sprung. The birds are singing. Old couples are holding hands. The vineyard is alive and green. What luck to live in Tigard, a town with fresh air, clean water and green spaces.

Being at one with nature promotes health and happiness. Thoreau said “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately.” Going to the vineyard is just as therapeutic.

Watching a hawk soar eases our madness. We are renewed and mindful. Worries are reduced. Nature helps us find choices that are good for our families and our planet. A green space even helps us smile at our in-laws. Strolling with a loved one and a glass of wine allows us to soar with the hawk.

Wine, like a green space, can be healthy, but one must be cautious. One glass per day is the maximum for a woman, two glasses for a man. (Sorry ladies; life isn’t always fair). Wine has not been shown to improve the health of young people. Pregnant women should abstain completely.

Should a teetotaler start drinking for health reasons? Probably not. But generally speaking, a glass of pinot, every day, beats the heck out of an apple a day.

Our next release event is scheduled for Saturday, June 18. In the meantime, bring your friends for a private tasting in our Horseleap Saloon and include a walk through our vineyard to see the growth of this year’s vines.
